Patent Application ID: 202121055792
Companies run on the humans that are supposed to do their duties to achieve production targets within the timelines. Manpower tracking is an IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) solution that enables supervisors to monitor the effective utilization of the manpower allocated to a particular station. Stations are assigned to a dedicated job/part during a timeframe. Thus, alternatively companies can check the effective utilization of the manpower deployed for a particular job or a part. The main aim of the solution is not to monitor the people rather monitor the cost being spent on a job so as to take corrective steps to optimize it. The similar solution applies to monitoring the trolleys that are used for carrying the heavy and large parts from one shop to another. So similar solutions can be effectively utilized for tracking the trolleys that are inside or outside a shop. Trolley tracking is also meant to generate an alert in the recipient shops for arrival of the material of a particular job for its next operation. Solution is based on a combination of more than one technologies like Wi-Fi, BLE and UWB. The combination makes it more reliable and foolproof.
